'This Looks Like a War Zone': Floodwaters Rising in Port Arthur, Texas
A calamity is unfolding in Houston and the surrounding areas as floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey continue to rise.
In Port Arthur, a city 90 miles east of Houston, many people are trapped, as rains have flooded most major roads out of the city and even a shelter for victims fleeing the storm.
"This looks like a war zone," Fox News' Matt Finn reported from the city. "We are witnessing people being rescued from their homes in bare feet, shivering, some people without clothes."
He said it's a "heartbreaking" and "devastating" situation, with county officials unable to reach the area due to the flooding.
"Our whole city is underwater right now but we are coming!" Mayor Derrick Freeman said
"This is one of the counties in Texas that also sent out the SOS: 'If you've got a boat, we need it,'" Finn said. "And there are people responding right now."
He noted, however, that the number of people displaced is rapidly increasing.
